We love oat meal in this house. It is such a quick, filling breakfast to make. It gives us the energy we need to keep moving and groovin'. I especially love overnight oatmeal, since my kids can heat it up themselves in the morning. Anything to help them help themselves is great in my book. Want to make some overnight oatmeal yourself? Find out how below!



Mango Over Night Oatmeal

To start off add ¼ cup quick cooking oats, 1 tablespoon of chia seeds, and place in your mason jar. Drizzle a bit of honey over the top, add desired amount of fruit (I used 1 mango between 4 pint mason jars), and fill with milk*, leaving ¼ inch of head space. Stir gently to combine. Place in your fridge overnight. In the morning, we heated it for 2-3 minutes in the microwave. The kids loved being able to help make their own breakfast in the morning. During the overnight soak, the oats and chia seeds absorb the liquid and soften. They are perfect in the morning! Such a great texture and oh so yummy!

*I used soy milk

  2. My husband is allergic to mangos. Can you substitute another fruit for it? Does it have to be a fresh fruit or can it be a canned one? Love your blog!!!

    1. Substitute any fruit you want. Get creative. We have done berries and mangoes so far. Both were super yummy!

  3. My husband is allergic to mangoes. Can you possibly substitute another fresh fruit like peaches? Can you substitute canned fruit, maybe drained? I love your blog by the way and I am not a mother, but a retired teacher. Thank you for all that you do. My account will say Jeff, but it is actually Barbie, his wife that wrote this.

    1. I forgot to mention my e-mail address. travelinbjb@yahoo.com to the post above about the substitution of something else other than mango. Thanks!

  4. Oh my gosh - I love this! I only eat real food, so this would be a perfect quick morning meal for me (or I could pack one for lunch). I pinned this! Great idea!

  5. Delicious! I'm presuming you don't put the glass jar in the microwave? Or do you? Also, do you happen to know how to tell if mangoes are ripe? The ones I get are always soft and juicy on the outside, but then they have a tough, stringy, bitter center. What's up with that?

    1. I put it into another bowl, so it was easier for my kids to heat up and eat from. The mason jars just made storage in the fridge easier:>
